What you’ll learn

  • Create Futuristic HUD Effects from scratch all within After Effects.
  • Use simple After Effects expressions to save hours of animating time.
  • Use simple shape layers to create something visually stunning.
  • Learn Keyboard Shortcuts for Faster Animating
  • Learn how to use 2D elements in 3D environments
  • Take clunky animations and give them fluid motions

After Effects users often times get intimidated by the “Iron Man” style futuristic HUD animations, I’m here to tell you it’s nothing to be afraid of! This motion graphics effect is something anyone can do with very little After Effects experience!

So join me in this course to dissect an animation that looks super complicated and making it super simple!

In this class we will learn and experiment with:

  • Turning boring shape layers into something visually interesting

  • Virtual camera animations

  • After Effects expressions to save you hours of animating time.

This is an introductory course and I will be explaining everything step by step. However, you may need to have some After Effects knowledge to understand basic functionality and layout of the software.

What makes me qualified to teach you?

I’m Sam! I’m a professional motion graphics artist. I’ve worked for a Major League Baseball team for 2 years. Had my work viewed in stadiums full of 40,000+ people every night in the summer.

My job is unique and I am thankful for the teachers who have taught me After Effects motion graphics. And I want to pay it forward to you by teaching you the motion graphics techniques that I have learned of the years!

The MISSION of this course:

You don’t have to be an After Effects genius to be able to make amazing motion graphics.

The bulk of this course focuses on creating and manipulating shape layers to create visually interesting motion graphics. Then we dive deeper by using these shape layer animations to create professional motion graphics projects.

I do my best to break down every step and explain why I’m doing what I’m doing. If you have any questions, hit me up in the Q&A section!

What we’ll be covering in this course:

  • Creating basic shape layers

  • Adjusting shape layers and stroke properties

  • Using 2D Animation in a 3D space

  • Stylizing footage with glows, tints and reflections and more to make beautiful motion graphics.

  • Using After Effects expressions to automate simple animations.

Ready to be a better motion graphics artist? Join us on this course to learn much more about motion graphics than just creating HUD graphics.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who wants to learn to use After Effects shape layers to create Hollywood level effects.
  • If you have used After Effects but have never used “Shape Layers” to their full potential to make AWESOME graphic elements.
  • Motion graphics artists and graphic designers

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
